Elevation calculation for a GPX file created by a Garmin "GPSMAP 62s"

The elevation inside the GPX file created by a Garmin "GPSMAP 62s" is not used for ascent calculations even if the that device has a barometric altimeter.  It would be good to recognize all devices that have a barometric altimeter and use their elevation information.

    The gpx root tag has the "creator" attribute set to "GPSMAP 62s"  ... it should be recognised as a thrustworthy source of elevation !!
